The New Moderators for 2010 Have Been Chosen

Post by WQ Coordinator » Thu Mar 04, 2010 10:53 pm

Well, the time has come to announce the new green names on the forums. After all was said and done, exactly 100 applications were received (if I include the two that came in late), and I decided on adding five new moderators to the group. It was a difficult decision, though this time around, I had a lot of moderator help and a whole lot of excellent applicants! There were a lot of people who probably would have done (or will eventually do?) a great job being a moderator, but the five we chose this time around are: Sintact, Kivia, Koa, -x-Sheeba-x-, and Canidae. If you're going to congratulate them, please do so on this thread rather than in PMs. And I really appreciate that all of you will stay positive on the forums about the choices. If you were not picked this time, that doesn't mean you had a bad application or your posts were inappropriate... it doesn't mean you're not qualified to be a moderator, it just means there were other people who were more qualified for the things we were looking for with this batch of moderators. Thank you to all who applied- I could tell how many of you put a lot of effort into those applications.

Edit: since some of you are messaging me, asking why you weren't chosen, please read this response: Just because you weren't chosen this time doesn't mean there was anything wrong. It just means that the applicants I chose were either more qualified or showed a skill/quality I was looking for that I didn't necessarily see from you. I always look for people who are helpful and friendly on the forums, I use your application to help me understand how well you know the forums and what you'd do in certain situations, and I compare all that with the other 99 applicants I heard from. I also ask for the current moderators' opinions and read their comments to help me determine who is picked. Sometimes people are picked because they stood out more for one reason or another, but again, if you weren't picked, that doesn't mean you did anything wrong. Just stick to what the other advice posted on this topic has been, keep positive, and keep trying.
Thanks for the avatar, Silverness!

Whoa, I was just finishing posting on another topic, and my name was green! xD

Congratulations Sintact, Koa, Sheeba, and Canidae! I'm looking forward to working with all of you, the other moderators, and everyone else as well!

And let me just add in that I bet every single person who submitted an application had the qualities to be a fantastic moderator.^^

Congratulations to everyone who received this position! I know you'll all do a great job of keeping the forums family-friendly. Good luck getting used to your mod powers; I kept accidentally editing posts when I first got mine. xD
